Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can prematurely wear your teeth down and can cause jaw stiffness and pain. For patients that grind their teeth while they sleep, our dentist often recommends that they utilize a night guard. Night guards cannot stop you from grinding your teeth, but they can prevent damage to your smile. Schedule your next appointment with Dr. Bertha Bravo, our experienced dentist, by calling us today if you suffer from teeth grinding in Hempstead, New York.
